2 tablespoons dried lavender leaves
1/2 cup boiling water
4 cups peaches (about 5-6 medium peaches) — finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
6 cups granulated sugar
1 pouch liquid fruit pectin
Place lavender flowers in a small bowl. Pour boiling water over flowers and
steep for 20 minutes. Strain and discard flowers.
Combine lavender liquid, peaches, lemon juice and sugar in a very large
stainless steel or enamel saucepan. Bring to a full boil over high heat and
boil hard for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in
Ladle into sterilized jars leaving 1/2″ headspace. Place jars in canner and
start timing when water returns to a boil. Process for 5 minutes.
TIP: Look for organically grown lavender at herb fairs and herb specialty
growers. For an added touch, place a small sprig on top of jar before sealing.
